Covers a touch dusty and marked, spine a little darkened; slight bowing to boards. Internally, scattered foxing throughout and edges spotted, some offsetting to blank pages from borders opposite but generally pages are clean and fresh looking; page-block bumped to lower corner.

Overall, remaining a particularly nice, clean copy – quite lovely.
